Kablam! I had recently retired from fifteen years as a nanny and was praying about what in the world to do with myself, when a small blurb in the church bulletin about a new mentoring program in Corbin city schools caught my attention. Yes! This was it! I was so excited I could barely control the gurgling joy within. I attended a meeting about it and then the training session. Hmmm. What was I getting myself into? As much as I wanted to be able to work one-on-one with a child who needed encouragement, the realities of some of the needs of these children discussed in the training session was a bit scary. Would I actually be able to make a difference, or would I be a big fat failure?
